    No Tears

    I have never been someone who was prone to tears, even as a kid I didn't really cry.  But, when I did, it was balls out, full on tears and hiccuping and runny nose. Well, when I was about seven or eight, stuff happened between me parents and it really upset me. So, I started...

    It's Impossible to Stop.

    As a child I never cried. Then I cried a lot. Everywhere and about everything. Several times in front of teachers. Just because my teachers would make a comment like "You have to work on this or that.". It would make me cry. Now I'm hardly ever crying again...

    How Pain Ends the Day

    A Thought?

     Sometimes... it seems like the people that try not to cry are the ones in need of a really good cry. You can't hold everything in forever. You have a breaking point. Just let it out when you can...  But what do I know? I cry all the time. :/

    Wish I Could Cry

    I am 52 and in my life i have never really been able to cry. I have had so many times when crying would have relieved some of the sadness and stress that built up in my life. People who cry probably can't even understand why I can't. It just seems I can't let go and let myself...

    A Family Poison!

    There was a saying, that my grandmother told my mother and she passed it to me... it was "Never let them see you sweat." That was an awful poison to pass on. Because it meant to hold in your feelings, keep smiling, and in the end it made things worse! I developed...
